GOOD FRIDAY Sociology surprise for me!
NEW MANDALA x PSS (Philippine Sociological Society) Collab just released Season 2 of “Philippines Beyond Cliches”. Here’s the link to the conversation between Nicole Curato and myself. Thank you Nicole Curato for giving voice to our Filipino tambays and to Bianca Franco for transcribing.

NEW MANDALA – 10 APR, 2020
